A part of the legendary New York art scene of the 1980s, Keith Haring (1958–1990) was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Haring was a great collaborator and worked with like-minded artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were interested in creating art for the many. Haring designed record covers for RUN DMC and David Bowie, directed a music video for Grace Jones and developed a fashion line with Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood. In doing so, he introduced his art and ideas to as many people as possible. ICE is delighted to welcome to Festival of Ideas, Darren Pih, the curator of the show. Darren will discuss Haring’s work and the exhibition as well as having time to answer questions from the audience.

Tate In Conversation: ‘Op Art in Focus’
Darren Pih, Exhibition Curator
A recording of this event is available to watch on YouTube.
Op art – short for optical art – emerged in the 1960s, combining lines, geometric shapes and eye-popping colour to create artworks that fool the eye. Tate Liverpool’s latest exhibition Op Art in Focus, moves beyond the typical period of op art and includes works by more contemporary artists such as Angela Bulloch. Join curator of Op Art in Focus Darren Pih (Tate Liverpool), for a discussion about the dazzling displays on show from pioneering artists of the 1960’s to the present day. Darren will be in conversation with ICE Associate Director, Professor Roger Shannon.
